1. Dried Mascara

It may seem that the mascara is already done for its purpose because it dried up already but think again before buying a new one. Adding saline solution to the mascara makes it usable again. Revive the mascara by adding a few drops of the saline solution and shake it well.

The solution allows the mascara to be moisturized causing the dried parts to re-wet. Saves time and money from buying a new one.

2. Falsies Glue
